History Of The Trade formed at the University Of Kent in early 2009 and immediately set about proving themselvesas an exciting arrival on the local music scene. Drawing influence from The Cribs, Biffy Clyro and Tubelord, they aim to produce hard hitting alternative rock combined with light hearted indie fun. Playing to 1,500 people at their first gig, local radio DJ Jamie Stephens proclaimed; “they’ve just blown all the other bands out of the water.”
H.O.T.T. released their first self titled E.P with Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson in the summer of 2009, which garnered praise from Manchester rockers Nine Black Alps amongst others. Followed by a download only single “You Found: Moon” which received airplay on BBC 6 Music Introducing. Since then History Of The Trade have supported underground indie heroes Tubelord, Elephants, Rock Sound Magazine cover stars Futures, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, British rock legends Feeder and mainstream pop royalty Florence and The Machine. This exposure has lead to a growing national fan base and demand for their 2nd EP "6ix Hurdles".
